The Charleston Animal Society will host a disaster preparedness seminar aimed at preparing South Carolina's animal shelters with disaster plans in case of an emergency.

Sponsored by the Humane Society of the United States, the event will prepare shelters with the proper techniques in dealing with animals during hurricanes, fires or earthquakes. 

"In many cases, hundreds of animal lives are at stake in just one shelter," Charleston Animal Society's Dan Krosse says in a news release. 

The event will be held at the Wescott Shelter on Dorchester Road in North Charleston from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
